Cruise Route 66 in This Clean and Custom 1972 Ford F-100

Route 66

Customizing a classic Ford truck is a dangerous endeavor. Fans of these old trucks are some of the most passionate people on the planet, and any misstep will result in endless internet heckling. Heck, most people will verbally assault you for simply replacing your stock wheels with some aftermarket ones, even if they are aren’t 26’s.

The owner of this 1972 F-100, however, did things the right way.  And he’s produced one of the cleanest customs we’ve seen in a long time – inside and out. One that we would like to take to Route 66 for a long and relaxing cruise. The two-tone green paint is unique and looks simply fantastic with a few custom gold touches that break things up nicely.

The rolling stock consists of vintage Cragar SS wheels wrapped in Cooper Cobra tires. The interior is every bit as clean as the outside, with Classic Industries Procar seats, aftermarket gauges with a spun aluminum housing, Hurst shifter, Vintage air, and a chrome aftermarket steering column and wheel.

This ’72 gets down the road courtesy of a 360 motor with an Edelbrock carb and a C6 automatic transmission. The other important stuff, like power steering and brakes are present and accounted for. After all, you want things to be reliable for your cruise on Route 66, no?

Whether you love or hate custom Ford trucks, you can’t help but admire this ’72.  It’s certainly not outlandish in any way as many customs are. It’s just a super clean and classy example of what a few simple changes can do to an already a great truck.
